The trip ! Part one

Hi folks: Florida was fun and I'll tell you all about it in this week's poem ( the trip back will have to wait a week.) Here goes:
My cousin Erin's wedding
By Lawrence R. Berger
The flight down was smooth
and I didn't even need a seat belt extender!
I was so proud! If I fly again it will be Air Trans!
we take the train to baggage claim and pick up
our luggage and run to catch the super shuttle.
Jorge number five picks us up and we leave the airport
for the hotel .
We arrive early but they still let us check in which was nice.
Thankfully the rooms were air conditioned !
Florida was ninety degrees the entire weekend !
Anyway we eat at a place called Mad fish and find out about a place named Skippers that was even closer to the hotel and cheaper too.
we'd eat there three times before the weekend was over .
The ceremony was quite short
only last half an hour
but it was a good thing that the sun held up because just as we were going in for dinner a lightning storm picked up and provided a nice light show .
after a few toasts and dancing I go to bed.
part two next week. see you then!

Hanging at the airport
By Lawrence R. Berger
It's raining now as we Rush from the parking lot
suitcases in tow . we check out flight with the Air trans employee
and we have to pay $75.oo for our checked bags .
we run like we're being chased by wolves after
we barely make it through security towards the gate
we make the plane and Bring Bring . the alarm clock goes of to remind me its Thursday and there is still one more day to go.
Let you know how the trip pans out in next weeks blog. see you then.

Summer time blues.

Hi folks : well this week I went to a tombstone unveiling for my favorite aunt . It was bitter sweet but at least it didn't rain ! Afterwards we all gathered at Friendly for lunch and chatting . I came within a whisker of being assigned to the kids table but I managed to keep my seat. Here's this weeks poem:
By Lawrence R. Berger
Time passes as it must
and along the way we lose
touch with people we love .
Ash to ash and dust to dust
and all that other crap
leads up to a life
lived till the end
I'll miss you.
see you next week.

Happy wednsday folks!

Hi folks : Been busy getting ready for the next wedding . It's in two weeks. oh well at least its not mine but a relatives. Not that I'm not interested in getting married myself , just that it's not happening in two weeks. Here's this weeks poem :

By Lawrence R. Berger
Clouds roll across the sky
day turns into night
and you wake one morning
and realize you haven't done a thing with your life.
Sometimes life is good
the cherry's are ripe
for the picking and
the sun shines
clouds roll across the sky
maybe its just the waiting
that makes it hard.

Sorry folks!

I'm back! sorry I missed last week but I'm here now! here's this weeks poem :

Stuff Happens 3
By Lawrence R. Berger
We leave Kansas city smooth as silk
but get hit between the eyes with
a three hour delay in Atlanta on our way
home .
What to do?
we decided to eat before we left Kansas
so we end up just watching kids play hackysack
by the phones. I wonder if the kids even knew what they were for.
Poppy gives his hydrogen peroxide speech for the millionth time
and the time moves on. we're asleep in our chairs when we hear the overhead
"now boarding flight 2210 to Rochester"
we get on the plane and
I have a coke .
we land and run to baggage claim and miracle of miracles our luggage comes off the rack ! we get home about 3:30 am exhausted but happy to sleep.
see you next week.
